Queen Una~

The Matriarch with her children: l-r:
Paul & Loretta, Johny & Faye, Cora Etta & Grandma McKnight
at her 9oth birthday party, Weiner, Arkansas 2005
I appreciate Grandma McKnight for her cheerfulness. She has the funniest stories to tell, and is always laughing. She smiles all the time, and will make you smile if you talk to her. I think that's part of why she's lived this long. "A joyful heart is good medicine."

Her garden in 2005~

She also loves to do hen-scratch, and other needle work. For years she kept a large garden, but in the past 2-3 years, she's been unable to do as much.

She writes a weekly column in the local newspaper, and has for many years. Telling about days gone by, and things of the past, as well as the daily "scoop" of town life in NW Arkansas. She enjoys going to church, and visiting with her neighbors and friends.
Her house~

Today is Great-Grandma McKnight's 93rd birthday, and even though we can't be with her, I still wanted to congratulate her on 93 years of hard work and love to all who know and love her.

Grandma, I hope that you have a wonderful day with your family and friends. We hope that tomorrow when you celebrate with the family, that you know that the family who couldn't be there for your special day is celebrating along with you and would love to be there too! HAPPY 93rd BIRTHDAY GRANDMA!!!


With lots of Love,

David, Julia, Joel, Abby, Caleb, Phoebe, Johanna & Jaden
